    That 'mud brick cottage' would more likely than not be an 'adobe cottage' in North American English too because of the influence of our Mexican neighbours.

    This type of brick made of "mud" (compressed earth/clay) plus straw is also known in [BE] as cob. So one could speak of a cob-walled cottage.
